    Can you post a pic of it? It's hard to say without actually seeing them. I have the same packs.
    I need R/Cers anonymous.

    yeah without pics of what your talking about its hard to tell and give advice. lipos for something wrong with them is best to show pics because giving advice without seeing pics is dangerous.

    i see the puffing/bulge on the ends. how old are packs since you got them new? i would call traxxas support on that because it doesnt look normal to me from all the lipos i have seen and been around. looks like to me its going to be the wires are not properly seated in the lipo casing perhaps. When you call you can ask if you can email the pics to them(like someone in particular) so they can see what your talking about. If they are not too old they should be covered under warranty for sure. till then i recommend not using the packs to be on the safe side just in case but thats me though.
